Sounds promising! So far the few pro audio "monitor controllers" I've tried following the Convert have for various reasons, somehow not reproduced the Converts full body & bass extentsion. Yet, as mentioned opened my eyes as to how much more clarity could be gained as well as, better L-R tracking / imaging ...by bypassing the Converts attenuator. The latter, really matters at very low level monitoring. Which is IMO a big deal when mixing. It's been a bit of a dilemma. Might try to find a used SAX2o to try.
